  1. The Flex Pump- An Innovation in Solar Water Pumping

    SBC: LIUJIA USA LLC            Topic: 84

    There is a great need for low-cost, efficient, reliable solar water pumping systems for agriculture. Especially for small farm applications, solar water pumping is a potential solution for crop irrigation and livestock watering where it reduces labor and allows the use of otherwise unusable land. Our Phase I objective is to create a working pump prototype that is as close as possible to a final ma ...

  2. Venting of Underground Storage Tanks Containing Ethanol-Gasoline Blends

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 88

    Vapors produced during the process of refueling cars are a significant source of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) emissions. Uncontrolled emissions cause economic losses and pollute the environment. This problem is exacerbated when the gasoline contains bioethanol because its presence increases the vapor pressure and volatility of the fuel. These increased fuel emissions from ethanol-gasoline ble ...

  3. Building an Operational Tillage Information System (OpTIS)

    SBC: APPLIED GEOSOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: 84

    Agricultural row crops occupy hundreds of million acres of land in the United States. Decisions regarding the implementation of tillage practices in these agricultural areas have a significant effect on other environmental outcomes including soil erosion, water quality, and carbon sequestration. In addition, the effects of tillage practices can vary due to soil type and topographic conditions. The ...

  4. Solvent Recovery from Vegetable Oil Miscella by Novel Solvent-Resistant Nanofiltration Membranes

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 85

    Soybean is the major source for production of edible oils worldwide and in United States. Pressing of the soybean into flakes followed by the solvent extraction with hexane (solvent) is most widely practiced for extraction of oil. Separation of solvent from oil-solvent mixture for solvent recovery and reuse is usually carried out by solvent evaporation. Evaporation (or distillation) demands consid ...

  5. VISTA: A Novel Therapeutic Target That Negatively Regulates Immunity

    SBC: IMMURX LLC            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We have discovered, characterized and functionally defined a novel, immune inhibitory ligand. This ligand is hematopoietically-expressed, a distant member of the B7 Ig-superfamily, and its extracellular domain bears homology to the B7 family ligand PD-L1. This molecule is designated as V-domain Immunoglobulin Suppressor of T cell Activation (VISTA). Distinct fr ...

  6. Scleroderma Subtyping from Fresh and Archived Biopsies using NextGen Sequencing

    SBC: CELDARA MEDICAL, LLC            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is an autoimmune disease that presents with a heterogeneous and complex phenotype. Major manifestations of the disease are skin fibrosis, vascular dysfunction, and immune system activation. There are no validated diagnostic markers. There are no curative treatments. One in three patients dies within 10 years of diagnosis. Some drugs (de ...

  7. Targeted Treatment of Recurrent Small Cell Lung Cancer with Anti-AbnV2 Antibodies

    SBC: Woomera Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this Phase 1 project is to improve an effective treatment of recurrent small-cell lung cancer (rSCLC) by targeting a tumor-specific abnormal receptor, AbnV2 that is a surface-marker of the disease. Currently, there is no effective treatment for rSCLC. Our data show expression of this abnormal vasopressin V2 receptor (AbnV2 ) is a common featur ...

  8. Novel Catalyst Systems


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Transition metal catalysts are widely used in the pharmaceutical industry for the production of active ingredients, precursors and new drug candidates. These products must be very pure, often requiring labor and energyintensive separation processes, to achieve the required purity levels. Of special concern in the present context is to avoid contaminating the pr ...

  9. Customized Nanofiltration Membranes for Enhancing Pharmaceutical Manufacturing


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall focus of this application is to develop nanofiltration membranes to recover the spent solvents generated from drug manufacturing processes allowing the solvents to be reused resulting in elimination of waste. This is also responsive to NIH RFP PA-09-100 entitled Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy System Technology Research and Development . By ...

  10. Novel Materials and Methods for Separations of Glycopeptides and Glycans


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Analysis of glycoprotein polypeptide sites of carbohydrate attachment and the structures of the glycans present on these proteins requires the combination of high resolution chromatographic separations and sophisticatedmass spectrometry. Hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) has great use in separations of glycopeptides and released glycans, exh ...
